Rome, Italy

How to use bibliometrics to assess performance and inform research funding? The first country visit of the MLE on Performance-based Research Funding Systems – to Rome, Italy – focused on the use of bibliometrics in PRFS and their potential effects. The host, ANVUR (the Italian National Agency for the Evaluation of University and Research Systems), provided insight into the characteristics of the bibliometrics used in the Italian PRFS.

Second country visit - MLE on Performance-based Research Funding Systems
